So. AD Nidalee only benefits her q in cougar form. Why do ppl prefer ad over ap? I'm not criticizing, I realize there must be a really good reason if good players use ad Nid. Please esplain. Thanks ppl.

It's not so much the AD as it is the tankiness.

First off, AD nid has better consistent poke in lane. Second, she benefits from lifesteal. Third, AD items allow for more tankiness.

That's about it. Plus the attack speed steroid she has on her heal is intense.

Tanky, and has better dueling power, which in turn makes it more difficult for the enemy to counter your annoying split pushing. That's about it really. It also has better lane control, as you max E for your main source of damage -and- sustain.

I prefer AP though. But AD makes sense in some situations.

AD Nid is just more consistent. You pick a Nid for her utility and for split pushing and she simply is able to do those things more consistently as AD because 1) she had more dueling power (as said earlier) 2) she is tankier, which means you can escape more frequently when split pushing and 3) She is a strong laner, especially against some of the more annoying top laner.

Edit: I will agree though, AP Nid is much more fun lol

Why not build both?

The only reason you'd play AD is to counter top lane.

Most of the time you need to be more tanky. There isn't much room for building both. I run AD runes, but I build Iceborn for the AoE slow. That's about as much building both as you go.

1: No cooldown on dem autoattacks.

2: Free tankiness from having Cougar.

3: Takedown literally the most OP non-CC-related skill in the game.
